page with an excellent history of the "a million monkeys at a million typewriters" meme, stretching back in one form or another to Aeneid projects.chass.utoronto.ca/chw which makes me wonder if any dada artists were familiar with Émile Borel's work (specifically the infinite monkey thing), they would have been contemporaneous and in the same place!

@aparrish Are you familiar with Jeremy Campbell's "Grammatical Man", ~ 1982?

@dredmorbius I haven't, looks fascinating! maybe the same gist as James Gleick's _The Information_?
